Look like a million bucks in your wedding dress.
Posing should be fun!
After years of waiting for your perfect match you can now look forward to one of the best days of your life. Sourcing the best wedding photographers for your wedding needs are of paramount importance. Not only would your photographers understand posing in all it’s glorious technicality, but your wedding photographers should also make you looking your very best, a super fun, easy and unforgettable experience. You will often find an over emphasis on either the technical or the intuitive parts of wedding photography, but to find wedding photographers that has the ability to marry both (excuse the pun) is worth his weight in gold! And that is one of the things that we do best!
We understand how intimidating it could be to have a lens stare at you in wondrous neutrality. We get it, you are pretty much as comfortable as a bottle nose dolphin would be swimming through the Karoo. And therefore we have compiled the following list of tips for your consideration. After all, nobody wants to be looking like a shop-front mannequin on your wedding photos.
With us, your photo experience is motivated by the visual results of love, romance and joy. You will be invited to encounter your partner in a natural and authentic way while we capture your picture-perfect moments. With that said here are a couple of easy to digest secrets regarding posing and posture.
1. Shoulders back, Chin out.
Don’t slouch and keep your shoulders back for a flattering posture. Wedding dresses can be heavy, but it doesn’t have to get you down. Keeping your chin out avoids the ‘double chin’ effect and will make your neck look longer, more feminine and elegant.
2. Bouquet Holding
Weddings are an accumulation of small details that come together to showcase the big picture. When you hold your bouquet (or anything else for that matter) it should look and feel natural. You should ask yourself “would it be comfortable to hold this thing in this way for half an hour?”. As a general rule elbows should not be held at 90 degree angles and your wrists should not be angled outward (But don’t worry we will be looking out for this anyway).
3. Balance and Posture
4. Smile Naturally
Let your smile reflect what words find immeasurable. Don’t feel that you need to smile in every picture as a smile should come naturally and not rehearsed. We feel that a wide scope of emotions should be captured during a wedding day. This could be anything from a quiet moment shared or a spontaneous instant of laughter.
5. Trust your photographer
Allow us to do what we do best… Take photos that woo you. It is our privilege to keep you looking at your very best in your wedding photos.
6. Have Fun
Remember beautiful pictures are not about striking the perfect pose. Relax and have fun on your wedding day, if you have chosen the right photographer your wedding pictures will speak for themselves.
We cannot wait to share the excitement and reward that awaits you when you receive your final wedding album, artfully designed and adorned with photographs of what could only be a perfect bride…You.
